For anyone looking to declutter, organize, and simplify, author Erin Boyle shares practical guidance and personal insights on small-space living and conscious consumption. At once pragmatic and philosophical, Simple Matters is a nod to the growing consensus that living simply and purposefully is more sustainable not only for the environment, but for our own happiness and well-being, too. Boyle embraces the notion that “living small” is beneficial and accessible to us all—whether we’re renting a tiny apartment or purchasing a three-story house.

Filled with personal essays, projects, and helpful advice on how to be inventive and resourceful in a tight space, Simple Matters shows that living simply is about making do with less and ending up with more: more free time, more time with loved ones, more savings, and more things of beauty.

Erin Boyle gently nudges the reader into rethinking the use of space in her new book, Simple Matters: Living with Less and Ending Up with More. She makes us take a hard look at the way we shop, collect and fill up every corner of our houses, as a consumer of today. Boyle shows us how to declutter when faced with moving into a smaller place. Careful choices in furniture, decorating, food and clothing make us realize that less is often more.
